    I always assumed it was round. Maybe Duane used the corner?

    The question you should be asking is what idiot pays $124 dollars for a pill bottle ;)

    Imagine at the jam session:

    "I got this genuine 1970s pill bottle, like Duane used"
    "Where'd you find it?"
    "eBay"
    "eBay?"
    "Yeah, I jumped in at 150 bills. I reckon I got me a bargain"
    "............"

    If they sell it for the asking price, I've got a garage full of MexiCoke bottles available for a reasonable price.:lol:

    I have a bunch of those in two different lengths laying around my house.

    I think I paid like 28 cents apiece off of Amazon.

    Free cork!

    I bought a couple when Duane was still with us after reading that's what he used. I dumped the pills out. I still have two. They weren't anywhere near that price. ;)

    Didn’t Duane use a Coricidin bottle?
    Anything along those lines should do just fine, certainly don’t need to spend $150.

    Use round bottle for round strings and use the square bottle for square strings it's as simple as that.;)

    I had about 15 coricidan bottles in 1972. I have none now:(

    Still can't pay slide, so it probably doesn't matter.

    Depends on what is in the bottle I guess?
